Bestpass Signs Fleets of All Sizes

Toll Management and Discount Services Provider Brings Savings to Fleets From 17 to Over 7,000 Vehicles

ALBANY, NY--(Marketwired - July 31, 2014) - Bestpass™, Inc., providers of bulk purchasing and streamlined toll management services to commercial fleets, today announced that its growing client roster includes fleets of all types and sizes. In addition to maximizing efficiency through its toll management solutions, Bestpass uses its bulk purchasing power to provide carriers with savings beyond standard toll charge discounts.

"The number of trucking operations that are using our toll management and discount services is expanding, not just in volume but also to include fleets of all sizes," said John Andrews, president and CEO of Bestpass. "Our current client list includes single truck owner operators to fleets as small as 17 vehicles and as big as more than 7,300 vehicles.

"Bestpass now has more than 250,000 pieces of equipment and over 125,000 transponders in service, and is processing over $22 million in tolls monthly for trucking operations," Andrews added. "To date, Bestpass has provided our customers with $30 million in toll cost savings, and is offering added value with our user-friendly account management tools and consolidated billing, and by providing a single transponder for both toll and weigh station bypass."

Mullan Transportation, LLC, a 48-state general freight carrier based in Maumee, Ohio, is using Bestpass on its 13 vehicles, including 11 Class 7 straight trucks and two tractors. "Our leased drivers pay their own tolls," said George W. Mullan, III, president of Mullan Transportation. "With Bestpass, we're making deeper toll discounts available to drivers, as much as $8,500 for the entire fleet in the past six years. We're also providing a system, including direct reimbursement from the carrier the trucks are leased to, so that our drivers have no out of pocket expenses for tolls and almost no management responsibilities over numerous tolling authorities. The small cost we incur for transponders is easily returned in driver retention."

RAM Motor Freight, Inc., a division of RAM Nationwide, Inc. based in Cincinnati, Ohio, is operating about 80 vehicles with Bestpass. "Toll discounts are the primary benefit," said Steve Kittle, director of safety & recruiting at RAM Motor Freight, "but convenience is also a definite factor. With Bestpass our drivers do not have to carry cash or obtain and turn in receipts, and it gets them through the toll plazas more quickly. Consolidated billing, conflict resolution services and using a single transponder for toll and weigh station bypass ease the management burden as well. Why continue doing it the old fashioned way, with drivers carrying lots of cash, when Bestpass costs so little and you get greater toll discounts? I would recommend to any company that they implement Bestpass programs into their operations."

Thomas E. Keller Trucking, a Sullivan, Illinois freight hauler, fields 225 tractors in over-the-road and regional service. "The customer service that Bestpass provides is far and away the best in the industry," said Blake Martin, business development specialist at Thomas E. Keller Trucking. "If we need a pass or a question answered, they have an immediate response and do not stop until we are satisfied with the situation. All of our various accounts are receiving the maximum discount, and we get one consolidated bill ready to upload into our financials. Additionally, Bestpass is our biggest advocate when we run into toll issues."

Werner Enterprises, Inc., headquartered in Omaha with a fleet of approximately 7,100 tractors and over 24,000 trailers, is among the five largest truckload carriers in the U.S. "Bestpass is providing us with as much as $200,000 in annual savings by successfully renegotiating existing toll discounts, finding new opportunities to lower costs, and resolving transponder violation issues," said Alicia Rist, manager Driver Payroll, Permits, & Tolls at Werner Enterprises. "Bestpass is very proactive in everything they're doing. They are constantly asking what they can do to serve us more effectively, and they always have the carrier's best interest in mind, all at a lower cost."
